India securities regulator considers allowing dual-class share structure

The Securities and Exchange Board of India is considering allowing companies to issue shares with differential voting rights.

These shares have rights disproportionate to their ownership. Dual-class structures help companies to raise funds without dilution of control and serve as a defense mechanism against hostile bids for change in control of the company.

India does not currently permit dual-class shares. SEBI is accepting feedback on the dual-class share structure until April 20.
